I see an awful lot of bitching, complaining and general brand hatred in this thread.  Let me add:

- If you want a Canon/Nikon camera like the A7/A7R to use with all your Canon/Nikon lenses, buy an adapter!
- If you don't like the A7/A7R, don't buy it.
- If Sony doesn't make the lens you want, use someone else's!

If you want a really great full frame camera, buy the Sony A7 or A7r and enjoy it.

I've been a Canon user for years and a Pentax user before that.  I now have an A7R with adapters for all my Canon, Pentax, Minolta, M42 and T2 lenses and love it.  I own one Sony lens, the kit 28-70mm fit lens for the A7 (because someone didn't like it and gave it to me).  BEST lens I've ever had for the price!

Stop bitching, go for it and have fun...
Not quite the post one expects from a first time poster ... nevertheless Welcome to CR!

Ummmmm, Yes, I agree with Rienz, welcome to CR, I think.

I've had my a7r for a while now, handed it to my eldest lad who likes it, but I recently re appropriated it to use with the Otus 55f/1.4, I must say that combination is quite remarkable, the Focus Peaking on the a7r is hugely useful with this Manual Focus Lens, I prefer this combo at the moment over the 1Dx with a Manual Focus Screen in place, especially in Low Light.

A7r + FE 55mm = 50L sold on ebay. I have no plan adding 50mm to my current gear. The primary reason I haven't place a pre-order on Canon 16-35 f4 IS is I'm waiting to see what Sony/Zeiss has to offer on their rumor FE 16-35 f4 OS.
Just bought the FE 55 f/1.8 and the FE 70-200 f/4 OSS lenses today ... and I agree with you about the 55, its a fantastic lens ... the 70-200 f/4 was surprise package, it is very light with very good build quality, makes it easy to travel with it.

Your signature is getting out of controll... ;D Keep in mind, FE 16-35 f4 OS is right around the corner.
;D ;D ... I do have my eyes on the upcoming FE 16-35 f/4 OSS, but I am seriously considering the 10-18 f/4 OSS - my reasons for that are:
I can have the 10-18 f/4 OSS mounted on a6000 and the 24-70 mounted on a7 with 55 f/1.8 & 70-200 f/4 OSS in the bag ... that will give me a very good range of 15mm to 300mm for any situation in just one small bag, especially when I'm out and about ... eventually when the MK II versions of a7/a7R come out, I will sell the 10-18 and get one of the MK II versions of a7/a7R and the FE 16-35 f/4 OSS ... lets see how that goes.

Sony FE 70-200/4 OSS is 80 grams HEAVIER and slightly LARGER than Canon EF 70-200 /4 L IS ... and delivers somewhat LESS IQ ... at 40% HIGHER price. ;-)
Yes, the Sony FE 70-200/4 OSS is "80 grams HEAVIER and slightly LARGER than Canon EF 70-200 /4 L IS", but following are the reasons why I went with the Sony FE version:
  • I already have the EF 70-200 f/2.8 L IS II, so I don't want another EF lens of the same FOL
  • Although I really like the EF 70-200, if I want to use it on my a7 or a6000, I need to use my metabones adapter which takes away the weight & size advantage and not to mention slow AF
  • Being a native lens the Sony FE 70-200 f/4 OSS auto focuses really fast and accurately like a machine gun on my a6000
So, for me, the above considerations are worth spending the extra money on the FE 70-200 f/4 OSS

For me it's a little too late ... I couldn't wait for the 7D MK II, so I got the 5D MK III and don't really see myself wanting to buy the 7D MK II - unless it has some mind blowing technology.

Sony is really on a roll with some great revolutionary cameras and the EVF on this one has to be one of the best features on any camera released in recent times.
